I agree with Kevin B about udev rules. I think that will solve your problem.
Does it matter where the boards show up in /dev? For example, you're wanting board A to do the same
job all the time and board B to do a different job. But if they can be made and connected all the
same way then the host can just tell the target at ttyUSB0 to do job A regardless which board it is.
Probably doesn't help but it's a different way to think about the problem.
